2015 Spring – INDD 448 : 100 Professional ID Studio Practices (KICKER)


  • Prof Huw THOMAS

Contact – 6 hours per week x 16 weeks

Restored contact with KICKER and in conjunction with their designer successfully agreed a mutually beneficial design brief, suitable for this level and caliber of students – INDD 448 is a CORE ID class, so projects have to work for all students.

Huw Thomas’s input included:

  • Re-established contact with sponsor – initial approach to KU was not handled by myself and lead went cold.
  • 100% of class instruction / mentoring
  • Blackboard Support – solely responsible for Blackboard VLE content
  • Hosting sponsor visits
  • Hosting interim presentation
  • Supporting student presentation teams
  • Attending final presentation to 20-30 KICKER employees in Kicker Headquarters, Still Water, Oklahoma
